A look at the latest restaurants, hotels, pubs and bars to open their doors

Rail House Café

A modern café with a globally-inspired menu offering healthy choices and indulgent comforts. Situated at London Victoria, it is the latest opening from Village London, whose other restaurants include the Riding House Café in Fitzrovia and Village East on Bermondsey Street. The design incorporates intricate Colonial-era details and custom-made furniture alongside glass and concrete.

The upstairs bar, the ‘Puffing Devil', has been designed with dramatic architectural views out of the two-storey, floor-to-ceiling glass walls, while the café also has an 80-cover terrace for the summer months. The drinks list offers classics and a selection of natural and orange wine, draft beers and bottles from small, independent producers from the local area as well as far-flung specialist brewers.
